How to transform a group of layers folderwise?



  • I can't figure out how to transform a group of layers folderwise. Everytime I select layer folder in the list and then try to transform (repostion/scale/rotate) the folder and the contaning layers, just the frontmost layer inside the folder is activated.

    CSP:

    Tried to search for this in manual but didn't find this issue.

    (1) I'm looking for a feature like in PhotoShop, where I can choose group/folder of layers and transform them together.

    (2) Why can't I (or how can I) transform multiple layers if I shift-click-select them?

    How is this done in CSP?

    Kind regards, Mikael



  • You must select the folder - the layer folder

    You're right! The procedure is slightly different in CSP vs PS and that confused me. One doesen't need to check any group-setting like in PS.

    Selecting cmd-T or -R does the trick with layer folder selected. Otherwise, if you point and click with the move/object tools, you will just activate the frontmost layer

    Thank you very much. Even if it's quite self-evident I could have spend the whole weekend getting the grasp of this ;)

    Kind regards,
    Mikael
